You know what product packaging I like? Flour. It's usually just paper and adhesive, often unleaded, eminently recyclable or biodegradable. If want longer shelf life, you're expected to transfer it to your own non-disposable container. For whatever reason, the industry has never much felt the need to muck with that convention.

@lrhodes i recently bought some rice from japan and it came like this - brown paper bag, no plastic. it felt so refreshing and elegantly sufficient.

@lrhodes Excuse me if I'm stupid for not knowing otherwise, but wouldn't you expect almost all packaging containing food to be almost always non-leaded?

That sounds like a health concern otherwise...

@phobos_dthorga Ha! That was an autocorrect error. I meant that the paper was often UNBLEACHED!
